The Mindful Application of Technology

It's the most wonderful time of the year (for snacks.)

You may have noticed it's Cadbury Mini Egg season again. Hooray! And, as always, Cadbury Mini Egg season (or CME season) overlaps with GSC season. That's right. The Girl Scouts are out with their cookies. Nathan brought some home from work with him on Friday, and we got to discussing the old cookie names vs. new cookie names. Seems Nathan has always known them as "Do-si-dos" but when I was in my cookie peddling days, we called them "Peanut Butter Sandwiches." And they were "Peanut Butter Patties," not "Tagalongs." Anyhow, we started to do some research on the internets, and uncovered this marvelous site.

The Girl Scout Cookie Locater!!

When we put in our zip code, it took us to the NorCal Cookie Finder, which, when we put in our street address, produced a Google map with (no really, it was incredible) little cookie icons indicating the nearest supermarkets where one could procure cookies! Even had the times when the cookie booths would be staffed! It's truly a great time to be alive.
